Off Campus Access to Library Resources
If you are a St. Olaf student, faculty, or staff member, you can log into our proxy server (EZProxy) and then access electronic resources that St. Olaf subscribes to. Because of our contracts for these resources, alumni and those not affiliated with the college do not have access to these resources from off campus. You are welcome to visit the St. Olaf Libraries and use the resources on one of our computers.
If you are off campus, the first time you click on the link for a subscription database, you will be prompted for your St. Olaf username and password (the same combination that you use to log in to e-mail, campus computers, etc.). After logging in, you'll be taken to the resource. The system will remember you as long as you are actively using the database. After about 30 minutes of inactivity you'll be prompted to log in again if you come back to our e-resources.
For the proxy server connection to be maintained, you must follow the links from the library's website to these resources. You cannot simply type in a URL or follow a bookmark.
If you have questions, please contact the Rolvaag reference desk at 507-786-3452.
